I keep seeing these little things on the front fenders above the corner lights on GX71s, etc. What are they?

They might be rear facing turn signal indicators?

They're basically just corner markers. They light up with the parkers/headlights. I guess they kinda help locate the front corners of the car when you're parking in the dark, etc. Mostly, they just look cool. A lot of Japanese models come with them. Particularly larger sedans from what I gather.

Ah, gotcha, thanks.

I gather they look like this:

Anyone know my best bet of finding an OEM X7 set?

A lot of stateside 80s-90s Buicks had them with two bulbs, one to tell you the headlight was on, and another for turn/running lights. If you only want them for the look, then that may be an easier part to source.

They look to be about $40 each, but some later model vehicles probably have similar clearance markers and may be cheaper.

the ones for the x8 aren't electric with bulbs, they have fiber optics cables from the corner light housings. dunno if the x7 is the same, but that might make it harder for you to get them to work right.

I think X7 is the same as I think my GX71 headlights have a port for the fiber optic cable. I was wondering what the hell that was!
